Help Us Build a Fair & Just Future.

The Future is Changing. We want all students to be ready.

Every young person deserves a fair chance to build the life they want. No matter who they are, where they come from, or how much money their family has, their education should prepare them for their next step and beyond.

The future is changing rapidly, and it also promises students new opportunities not seen by past generations. If their educators help them develop the knowledge, sense of self, care for others, and confidence to solve complex challenges, they can access opportunity and create a better world. By supporting Leading Educators, you can help school systems deliver on that promise.

The Challenge & Opportunity

Today, school system leaders face staggering obstacles and competing priorities caused by historical inequity, a changing world, and the recent shocks of a global pandemic. Teachers face urgency to accelerate and reimagine learning, but too few have sufficient support. Too many students at the margins are not ready for their next step because they haven’t yet had a fair opportunity to learn.

All of this has pushed schools to their limits. Structural changes to how districts cultivate excellent teaching can’t wait, but they can’t do it all on their own. Now is the time to help school systems build instructional infrastructure that lasts and that equips them to get real results far into the future.

Students are behind academically. Gaps are wide.

Average reading and math scores on the long-term trend national assessment of education progress (NAEP) saw the largest drops since 1990 in reading and the first-ever drops in math.

Despite these trends, Leading Educators helped partners reverse existing declines and accelerate learning over the same period by going deep on what works.

Systems need to upskill their educators.

Most teacher professional development is rigid, one-size-fits all, not connected to a specific curriculum, and doesn’t facilitate development of stronger instructional practices.

This results in inequitable access to grade-appropriate, engaging instruction that is likely to prepare students for future learning and the world of work. Leading Educators is an industry leader at helping teachers practice what they teach and improve student experiences in real time.

Resource constraints are looming.

Districts at large are expecting to face budget challenges in upcoming school years with declining enrollment and increasing costs. Too few are currently spending on recovery solutions that change their core operations and build upon established evidence of impact.

Leading Educators offers coherent, systemic support that builds lasting capacity, leadership, and the strategy to achieve bold goals.

Our Difference

When teachers learn, students learn. 

The large majority of education interventions produce weak or null effects. But multiple rigorous studies with independent researchers conclude that our approach improves students’ literacy and math learning, student experience, and teacher retention at higher rates than similar interventions. Better yet, those results endure years after partnership. One randomized control trial found that Leading Educators’ support elevated an average teacher to the top third of effectiveness. Teachers reach new professional heights, and more students thrive.

By building on strengths and bolstering the conditions for educators to succeed, we ensure that transformational leadership, practices, and results endure without us.

"Nonprofits funded by Overdeck Family Foundation, such as Leading Educators...,have made evidence building and continuous improvement a priority over the past several years, conducting rigorous evaluations to ensure the product they offer districts improve student outcomes and are affordable...But as rapid-relief dollars expire, the pressure on programs that lack evidence of student impact will grow. This may be just the impetus the education sector needs to prioritize evidence, improving the chances that all students receive the best possible education going forward, regardless of budgetary constraints."
Anu Malipatil, vice president of the Overdeck Family Foundation
